A couple of my favorite exhibition spaces are the Museum of Fine Arts (Boston), and the Museum of Science (Boston). There are many others but these two stick out as my favorites. Both have large floor to ceiling floor heights which allow people to enter the space and feel like they are in their own world. A space within a space. When your outside looking in these museums capture your attention and give you this sense that you want to check out the space. When your inside you have a new sense to explore. There are different sequences of spaces that make your journey inside feel exciting. For example in the museum of science they have this exhibit (off of the main area) that has this large open space in the middle and is 4 levels high. Surrounding this space are the four levels that have window openings along the interior. This allows people to enjoy their own private space while being part of a larger area. This is also done through the architecture of the space. Having large floor to ceiling ratios, or placing openings or windows at certain places. You never feel trapped when in a small exhibition space, rather you feel like a part of a bigger idea. I look forward to using some of these architectural techniques in my design.
